Hi,

I do not understand why whis hotel could get 100%. The hotel did not really give us a good impression. Location is just next to the train railways and the trains in Sri Lanka are a bit noisier. When we arrived, the lady was offering me really expensive room which I did not book but it was deluxe and it was free so wanted to make more money. I think it was too expensive though comparing to sri lankas rates. When I said no, she was about to show me my room that I booked but after opening the locked door she noticed that the room was taken by somebody else and luckily nobody was in as it would be a shock for the person. Then she was asking me for more money for deluxe room as there was not any available. The another room we booked, had no hot tap, only cold one and water was really freezing for us. When we mentioned that ther is no hot water, we had to phone to owner as the lady who was in could not undertand very well so could not solve any problem. After a call, we were told that standard rooms do not have a hot water although we have already booked hotels in sri lanka before and always had a hot water. She also said that on booking.com does not say that hot water is included. I was shocked that someone can even offer the rooms with no water to the visitors and guests during their travels in these times.Wifi was not working when we arrived. No restaurant in the hotel. The hotel was prob run by family and I did not like all these schmaltzy pictures and stuff all over the hotel, it was a bit scaring me. We left after a few mins and we found very nice accomodation even cheaper and close to the lake so glad it was happy ending. I believe someone else had a better experience with this hotel, but unfortunately it was not us. I recommend you to find accomodation close to the lake as the countryside is very pretty and we had a good time over there.

We stayed here for two nights. The rooms are comfortable, they have aircon, a modern bathroom and the beds are big enough for western people.
We also had a great dinner here.
But the best thing are the hosts, they are very helpful and will do absolutely anything to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

The building is new and rooms are very good with private bathroom. The host is extremely nice and helpful. The only problem I can find are, if you have sleeping problems, the sound of the train which is a few meters outside, but that will only bother after 5am. They have a nice bike rental service and restaurant on request. I would raccomend Senowin to anyone

Although the rooms were basic, they had everything you need, and the bathroom was brand new. The hostess was so cute and friendly, without being obtrusive. We enjoyed a great dinner and breakfast cooked by her, which was amongst the best food we had in Sri Lanka. Although in the centre of Anuradhapura, this was a very nice and quiet place.
This stay was great value for money, as it was not expensive.

Nice, spacious place with all what you can expect.
What is over all expectation is the friendly management which is acting as a real knowledge base. If you need any information and/or advice how to manage your stay in Anuradhapura, or you need a bycicle or a reliable tuk-tuk, you can be sure you will get excellent support.
If some technical issues arise there will be solved quickly.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms are after a carefull renewal. Roooms looking to the entrance might be nois due to...

Without any doubt one of the best place and centraly located in Anuradhapura, close to the train and bus station, behind the main street and very close to the great Ruwanweli Saya Stupa!
This mama&papa 'guest hotel' is full of wonderful surprises incl. Ceyloneese breakfast if you desire or even a dinner in a traditional cooking you may enjoy on the balcony. Highly recommanded.

Room Tip: Get the room with balcony!
